Short Tail Syndrome?

Having spent the day looking at a frozen picture on PuddingCam, I wondered what I would be faced with on my return home.  What I found was Cagney doing an impression of a lovebird – he has lost his second tail!

This evening he has been extra dominant & I suspect it is because he is trying to make up for his lack of tail.  I have named this Short Tail Syndrome (STS).  When not feeding Atilla, he has wanted to eat whatever anyone else is eating & wanted to sit wherever anyone else is sitting.  “Anyone else” was mostly Bezukhov.

I guess the only cure for STS is to wait for the tail to grow back.  It may take up to 6 weeks for Cagney’s tail to grow back.  Will we have to put up with his brazen behaviour for that long?!

    I’m afraid the four of you are going to have to put up with Cagney’s behaviour for a LOT longer than six weeks – more like, the rest of his life, tail or no tail!

    Cagney looks so cute and innocent.
